(Schwarz, The Complete Works of Marcel Duchamp, 430: "Duchamp and Halberstadt's subject is a rare endgame problem in chess... Duchamp designed the cover of the book with as much care as he devoted to more conventional aesthetic productions: one more example of his disregard for traditional art categories.")
